Track Name: Everything I Am
VERSE 1:
I met a bear in a room over there
He was kind and polite and he gave me advice
He explained to my ears what he'd learnt through the years
And he said to my feet not a word of defeat

CHORUS 1:
I will change
Everything I am

VERSE 2:
I met a mouse in a room in a house
He had shoes, a boe-tie and a glass on his eye
I inquired of this mouse, whom I met in the house
What he knew of desire in his life near the fire

CHORUS 2:
You've got everything I want
And a little I don't need
And a little I don't need
Track Name: Be Yourself, Damn It (2013 Version)
VERSE 1:
Who are you what have you done with her
Are you a replacement
For the girl that I have fallen for?
You look the same but inside you're transformed
So make a decision
To be the girl that you were a week before
Or that's it I'm leaving

CHORUS:
Why do you change yourself to fit in?
Why do you change at all?
Why do you change yourself to fit in?
Why do you change at all?
You've got to be yourself

VERSE 2:
What's the point of being just like them
You're not meant to fit in
With the crowd against it you're to swim
Individual is what you are
I can't even tell you
Now the distance is almost too far
I can't even help you
Track Name: Every Single Wall
VERSE:
Life's not long enough care about the afterlife
Isn't it ironic that we die?
We spend these days away like seconds in a microwave
Just cooking ourselves alive

And I say:
"I don't want to live another day
In the shadow of the valley
Over looking where we lay, hey
I just wanna feel the sunlight on my face
And your grace."

"I don't want to live another day
In the middle of the winter
Where we walk our separate ways, hey
I just want to be another sign of your grace"


CHORUS:
Tear down every single wall
That keeps me from you
Tear down all those things so tall
That keep me from you
Tear down every single wall
Tear down every single wall

OUTRO:
I can
Feel the sun
Reminds me
Of your love
Track Name: Grasping At Straws (2013 Version)
VERSE 1:
You've got the flowers set right by the window
I'd much prefer them out beside the door
You've got the answers set right by the table
I let the questions fall right to the floor
Floor...

CHORUS:
Grasping at straws, should I stay here?
Dead to world, but I love you my dear...
Grasping at straws, should I stay here?
Should I stay here, girl?

VERSE 2:
You've got the painting hung up in the hallway
I've put the carpet down here on the floor
Matters like these just don't seem so appealing
Tragedy shakes you right down to the core
Core...
Track Name: Without Wings (2013 Version)
VERSE 1:
Reaching out to take the promise you extend
Gets me through the night, and through the dividend
I have come a thousand miles, of surplus and her tempting smiles
Surely I can make it home with you

VERSE 2:
So I took the hall of fame to accident
A place where you can go to relax yourself
She had said a thousand words, to tell me what I never heard
Never did I think I'd let you down, down

CHORUS:
With arms outstretched
And broken legs
I fly so high (without wings, do you sing?)
With heavy heart
I fall apart
You fly so high (without wings, do you sing?)

VERSE 3:
Pieces of the jigsaw in my last refrain
Sever all the ties or try to ascertain
You could make a million stars, with cafe drinks and chocolate bars
Never did I think you'd sell me out, out
